The factory, located in Puerto Padre municipality, began making high-quality cigars in February and is expected to produce 700,000 units this year. The province has already exported 77,000 Havana cigars.

Company executives pointed out that they are training cigar rollers to increase production gradually.

Las Tunas began harvesting tobacco in the late 1990s and fields cover a total area of 1,800 hectares.
